Finishing the finish.

Why is the finish always the hardest part?
A bit of dust and its sand out and re-finish.
With the pressure of top coat perfection, i'm trying to finish these three pieces for a set studio visits next month.
The cold weather doesn't help.
Letting the finish warm up encourages the flow out greatly.
It's an old So-Cal Hot-rod'r trick from the days of laying lacquer.
Get the formula hot and it will flow...
So flow she goes.
The cover is a combination of Birdseye maple, Ebony and photograph inlay.
Making the layer sanding even more difficult these layer react to the finish in their own ways.
Just don"t breath on it...
